Many of our graduates build careers in areas that draw directly on the specialist geographical knowledge and skills they develop through their degree. Areas of employment include:

  • land and water management
  • flood risk management
  • development and environmental consultancies
  • housing and social welfare organisations
  • local and central government
  • tourism and conservation
  • the geospatial industry, using GIS or satellite remote sensing

This course will also help you develop the wider graduate skills and attributes that many employers value: problem solving, IT and communication, analysis, and working with partners. Our students are also successful in securing places and funding for advanced postgraduate degrees.

“After graduating I got a job as a field assistant in Kimberly, British Columbia through the Calgary Zoo. I spent that summer collecting data on and reintroducing the endangered Northern Leopard Frog. Following that I was lucky enough to get a job as an Environmental Specialist with my current company. We focus on environmental consultancy, and I specialize in conservation and reclamation projects throughout western Canada. Following three years’ experience and having enough credits from my degree I was accepted into the Alberta Society of Professional Biologists in 2021. I am currently a project manager and Biologist in charge of fieldwork at the company.”
